As for this pregnancy, I'm finally feeling somewhat human again. The nausea is only occasional now and I feel like my energy is working at about 60%. Better than the 2% it was at a few weeks ago! I'm feeling the baby move some already. I'll be 16 weeks on Thursday and I'm already ready for it to be here. But mostly, I'm ready to find out what it is. I'm going to need a few months to adjust if we're having another boy! But since i feel like this is a girl, I'm really hoping it is. i'd really like the opportunity to give Punky a sister. I feel like every little girl needs one! I sure wish I had one!
On the down side, Punky has developed a fever and isn't feeling too good today. I thought maybe it was her ears, so I took her to the doc today. It's just a fever virus for now, thankfully no puking. Although Chicken threw up a little earlier today. It was more like spit up, but he hasn't done that in weeks, so I figure its just him getting sick, too. I really hope I don't get it. I'm tired of feeling bad!
Chicken is now standing on his own. I caught him today standing up by himself and when I looked over at him, he just grinned like I had caught him red-handed in the cookie jar. It was so cute. I know it's only a matter of time before he takes those first steps. He's certainly not as shy as Punky was. She didn't walk until 13 months...average by any kid, but she could have done it by 11 if she hadn't been such a chicken. Chicken still won't walk while you hold his hands very much, but I can tell he's got an adventurous side that's just waiting for the right moment to rear its head...most likely when I least expect it. I'll probably look up and he'll be running around with Punky in just a few weeks. Thank goodness though he will be walking before #3 is born!
Oh, and we're STILL WAITING about the house. It's been a week now! Thankfully, we're still getting lots of showing. Six showings in 8 days!
